Regular services from Blackburn to Hellifield were withdrawn pre-Beeching on 10th September 1962 but excursions continued until 7th February 1971. The line then settled into 19 years of freight and diversion use until excursions resumed on 14th May 1990. On 29th May 1994, Clitheroe and the line to Blackburn were fully reopened to passengers. This included a county council ticket hall and information office at the new Clitheroe station but this closed on 5th February 2020. North of Clitheroe the line still sees freight, Sunday Dalesrail passenger excursions and railtours. 150201 from Manchester Victoria has just arrived on 7th April 2016. 3/8</p><p>07/04/2016<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/M/Manchester_Piccadilly'>Manchester Piccadilly</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/M/Manchester_and_Birmingham_Railway'>Manchester and Birmingham Railway</a></small></p><p>150132 to Buxton (left) and 323227 to Crewe (right) at Manchester Piccadilly station on 30th April 2016. 4/8</p><p>30/04/2016<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/L/Llandudno'>Llandudno</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/S/St_Georges_Railway_and_Harbour'>St George's Railway and Harbour</a></small></p><p>150262 just arrived at Llandudno station with a Conwy Valley Line service from Blaenau Ffestiniog on 23rd May 2016. 5/8</p><p>23/05/2016<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/B/Blaenau_Ffestiniog'>Blaenau Ffestiniog</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/B/Bala_and_Festiniog_Railway'>Bala and Festiniog Railway</a></small></p><p>150262, with a Conwy Valley Line service to Llandudno, waiting to depart from Blaenau Ffestiniog station on 23rd May 2016.
